FLUBBER (or Glorax)
This recipe will make individual packets of flubber.
Put 3 tablespoons of water into a ziploc bag.
Add 1 tablespoon of white Elmer’s glue, not school glue.
Add 2 heaping tablespoons of Borax.
Have children mix the ingredients will in the bag.
Remove mixture from the bag and shape it into a ball.
If the mixture is too sticky, have the child roll the mixture in a little bit of Borax.
Your child will be able to stretch and shape this mixture.
You can also bounce the flubber or use it to pick up colored pictures from the comics.
This recipe is like the Flubber recipe, however liquid starch is used in place of Borax.
You will need 1 tablespoon of liquid starch.
2-3 drops of food coloring (if desired) It can stain hands and clothes.
2 tablespoons of the original white Elmer’s glue (not the school version)
Mix the glue and food coloring together in a bowl.
Place the liquid starch in another bowl and slowly pour the glue mixture on  top of the starch.
Let the mixture stand for 5 minutes before removing it from the bowl.
If the mixture is runny, add a little bit more starch.  If it does not stick to itself, add more glue.
Kneed the silly putty for a few minutes.
Store the mixture in a zip-lock bag when not in use.
This mixture is fun because it seems both wet and dry at the same time.
In a bowl, add one box (16 oz.) of cornstarch.
Let your children add water to the dry cornstarch a little at a time.
Have children mix the ingredients together with their hands.
Place the mixture on a large cookie sheet with sides.
Let your children experiment with the mixture. What can it do, what can it not do?
Variation: Add a few drops of food coloring into the mixture, if desired.
Start by letting your children help you tear three rolls of toilet tissue into small pieces.
Place the pieces into a plastic dish pan.
Next, add 2 bars of Ivory soap, that you have shaved into small pieces.
Finally, add 8 to 12 cups of warm water.
Let your children take turns playing with the mixture.

Food coloring is fun to use with these recipes, however, be aware that it can stain hands and clothes.
Do not put these substances down drain, especially the clean mud, they can cause havoc in the pipes.
Wear gloves when touching Borax because some people are allergic to the powder.
